Pyramid Designs has updated FTP Suite, a set of classes and code modules that allows FTP operations to be implemented in applications made with the REALbasic development environment from Real Software.
In version 2.2, the connection timeout (which defaults to 20 seconds) can now be modified to allow transmission over slow connections and with slow servers. FTP Suite can now return a Name List (NLST) instead of the standard list, when a directory request is sent to the server.
The update is free to all professional, hobbyist, and source code licensees. The US$59.95 pro license allows use in any commercial product or in-house tool. The $29.95 hobbyist license allows use in free or shareware programs. You’ll have to contact Pyramid Design for details and pricing on the source code license. A demo of FTP Suite 2.2 is available at the company’s Web site.
